Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cliff775 Does the job of keeping out the weather out
These were easy to install. Just use a little lubricant to help the rubber slide through the aluminum rails. The only thing I did not count on was that when water freezes under these the rubber has a tendency to stick to the ice and partially pulls out of the rail.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chad A replacement part that actually replaces!
Know how you need a replacement something, but your part doesn't quite match the shape of the replacement part? Like when you buy a universal remote that only does some of what your old remote did? Or finding a replacement garage door sealer on a 12 year old garage door?
Well, this isn't that. The bottom of my garage door isn't flat. It's bowed in the middle. They don't make the rubber gasket any more. They don't make garage door like that either. But, this replacement has an aluminum piece that fit right over that and only required some longer sheet metal screws to attach. Attached the aluminum support, slid in the rubber gasket and VIOLA! done and done!
The rubber even formed to shut the gap in the garage floor of an inch. Still functioning in a Minnesota winter.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Denny Great product!
I am very happy with this product. I have combined this with a tsunami seal on my garage floor and now have no more rain water coming underneath. The product comes with four 4.5 foot aluminum mounting brackets and a single 18 foot long vinyl seal. Brackets are easy to drill through and install. Screws are included, although if you have an unusual garage door like mine you may need to buy longer ones. The vinyl seal is a little tricky to slide into place, however spraying the mounting grooves with silicone spray will make this much easier. Overall I have been very happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Thinker Great product for sealing bottom of garage doors.
Product is great - devised a new way to install. Have an 18' wooden door. Choose to install the 9' section on right side, first. I drilled holes in the aluminum and put the two 4.5' sections together with duck tape at the seam. Used the spray solution of water and dish soap to make the rubber base slide more easily on the track. To give this rubber substance and form, I pushed 1/2 inch foam pipe covers into the 9' hole. I placed the 9' section on the concrete and let the garage door come down on it. Used a pencil to line the top of the aluminum plate and then drilled the screws into four holes to hold. Then, I raised the door to a workable height and finished putting in the remaining screws. I had made a hole about every six inches. I was now ready for the left side of the door and repeated the above steps. When inserting the 1/2" foam (2.97 for 12 feet), use plenty of spray to push the foam into the rubber molding. (to make this easier, get 1/2 PVC and this really makes the foam go in better) I took my time and did one 9 ft. section one afternoon, and the other side took the same time. However, I have no more gaps between my concrete floor and the bottom of the garage door. First time in 35 years. Hope the above installation steps are helpful. Whatever the width of your door, just cut the rubber in half insert in the two sections. If door is 9' wide, you will receive two 4 1/2 aluminum sections and one rubber piece that is nine feet long. And, always start from the middle and work to the sides of the garage to insert the foam pipe cover. Can go to the end where garage rail is and insert the other end.
The rubber weatherstrip is tight against the concrete and looks great. Although the aluminum plates are level all the way across, they are not level with the bottom trim of the garage. So what, one really has to look hard and be really a perfectionist to see this. Replacement of the rubber will also be much easier down the road. I did not have instructions but had read all the other reviews. I analyzed the project and devised my own installation steps and it worked great. Hope you try this. BUT, this is a project which is not to be rushed -- take your time - pace yourself.
